As a recent ESRB listing recently suggested, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 will arrive on PlayStation 3 as a downloadable PlayStation 2 Classic, publisher Atlus has confirmed.

You’ll be able to download the game from the PlayStation Network in North and South America on April 8 for $10. As a PlayStation 2 Classic, it is a straight port, and doesn’t include improved graphics or extra features.

Persona 4, first released on the PS2 in 2009, is set in the fictional rural town of Inaba, and revolves around a group of teens struggling with the pains of growing up while simultaneously trying to unravel a supernatural murder mystery.

Atlus is also bringing Persona 5 to the United States in 2015, though so far it's only been announced for the PS3.
